Seasonal Day Use Vehicle Permits

A Seasonal Day-Use Vehicle Permit is a great way to save money and enjoy provincial parks.

What you get

  • Unlimited daily vehicle entry at over 100 operating provincial parks for the duration of your permit.
  • Daily park entry for one vehicle plus all its passengers.
  • The opportunity to visit your favourite park regularly throughout the season or to explore parks across Ontario.

Which permit is right for you?

Annual day-use vehicle permit

This is our best value permit.

Explore provincial parks for an entire year (January 1 to December 31).
Visit 5 or more times a year and it pays back. Go for a hike, to the beach, for a picnic, drop a fishing line and so much more.
If you are a private individual or family, this pass is for you.
